A large, grand floral arrangement is no doubt beautiful and romantic, but laying low can also make a dramatic and lovely statement. Designer Erin Young of Mercedes Flowers and CMI Wholesale joined us to show us how to make our own flower arrangements. She started off with a low square vase filled with water. Then she added a big leaf at the bottom and put white hydrangeas in the middle. To add a pop of color she randomly dispersed colored roses throughout the arrangement. One vital tip she gave us is to make sure to cut the stems at a diagonal, because it helps the flowers get water easier and keeps bacteria out. Mercedes Flowers offers wholesale flowers if you are looking to create your own arrangement!
